A really excellent lunch that exceeded expectations. A burger with a difference, excellent beer and all round a cut above the usual pub food. The menu is imaginative and different and the food delicious. Many thanks

Really enjoyed our meal here on a Friday evening. Friendly staff and good service. Good variety of gins for a pre supper drink in the bar. Delicious food, particularly the prawn and monkfish curry and the fig starter. Would definitely go back.
